following my #birthdayproject, i have been really inspired to practice kindness everyday.
so you can understand how excited i was to discover Kmart has partnered with the “no kid hungry” project to help end child hunger.
did you know that one in five kids in the US go hungry everyday?
we aren’t talking far away lands, & foreign countries here. no – 16 million kids going hungry in our very own backyard.
back in may, Kmart & the world’s largest bake sale help raise enough money to connect hungry kids with 1 MILLION meals.
now Kmart is matching donations to the no kid hungry program, in hopes of raising enough money for another MILLION meals.
ready to learn how you can help make a difference?
want to learn more about Kmart’s mission to end child hunger? join me (@according2kelly) & my (soon-to-be) bff’s ty pennington & sandra lee for the #1millionmeals twitter party on thursday, august 8th, 2013 at 10am PST, 11am MST, 12pm CST, & 1 EST. rumor has it there will be prizes! (wahooooo!)
interested in donating? all it takes is one dollar*… just a single dollar provides 10 nutritious meals for a child. who’s ready to make a difference?
Kmart is making a guaranteed donation of $100,000* to share our strength regardless of the total value of purchase transactions through the shop you way charity gift registry and the number of new Kmart birthday club registrations that take place through august 31, 2013. share our strength is a non-profit organization recognized as tax-exempt under internal revenue code 501(c)3. for more information on share our strength, visit www.nokidhungry.com
* this amount was determined on the basis that $1 can help connect a child with up to 10 nutritious meals, which is, in turn, based on the individual experiences of share our strength’s grant recipients. it is provided to illustrate how community investments can be used to help end childhood hunger. each contribution made to share our strength represents a contribution to its original mission. donations will be used to reach the highest number of children facing hunger in america. share our strength is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
